Working with the Outbox
The outbox is the server that handles the outgoing emails. Each mail host has one server performing this function.
Service Manager comes with a default outbox so you do not need to create it. We recommend that you only use this one outbox.
You can modify the settings of the outbox.
1.From the Configuration Console, click Configure > Email Configuration > Servers to open the Email Configuration workspace.
2.Click the record link under the Mail Host column. The Email Configuration window appears.
3.Enter information into the fields.
|Authentication||The authentication method, either AuthLogin or none. Auth Login is the SMTP_AUTH term for the Microsoft SMTP client.|
|Block Outgoing Email||Blocks any outgoing emails generated by the application from business rules, quick actions, escalations, workflows, and so on. Email records are created and associated with the applicable record, but are not sent.|
